Independent Medical Exam (IME) Q&A

The Washington Administrative Code (WAC) rules that set guidelines for independent medical examinations (IME) became effective on April 23, 2022. The L&I Self-Insurance training unit has conducted a number of presentations on the rules since that date and has compiled a list of the most common questions posed and answers given during those sessions. For additional information about the rules, please review the April 15, 2022 communication and the IME chapters in the Claims Adjudication Guidelines. You can also review the IME Rules training materials.
